The Well Traveled Home!

My style is very eclectic. I love to mix pieces from various cultures and eras. I feel a room must have at least one antique piece, although I prefer many! I also love the trend back towards a well traveled space. One can have Asian mixed with French pieces and accented with African art. The sky is the limit but just don't over do it! Let each piece compliment the next and not compete with each other for attention in the space.  Here are a few spaces that I think embody a well traveled feel, and some suggestions on how to achieve this yourself, enjoy!
